Born and raised in central Oklahoma. I completed the Teacher Education Program and graduated from the University of Central Oklahoma with a Bachelor of Science in Special Education December 2021. I have been living in Guthrie, OK with my husband, Chris, and our 3-year-old son, Stryder since 2019. We love to be outdoors hiking, kayaking, and spending summers at Lake Tenkiller.
This is my first year teaching and I could not be more excited to work in the virtual education setting. I cannot imagine a more rewarding and fulfilling career than in education. I chose special education because I think that all children are unique and have something special that they can bring to their own individual education. The virtual educational environment takes that individuality a step farther and provides students an opportunity to grow physically, mentally, emotionally, and even socially, in a setting that works for them. My goal as a virtual teacher is to positively impact students by encouraging growth, assisting in skill development, and ultimately helping students work towards independence.
